The pizzas here were recommended to us by our Aibnb host in Varenna, and they were delicious! Service was friendly and informal, and the food was produced really quickly too. You've got to have a pizza when you're in Italy, and this was just the ticket.

On the edge of the main square, this rustic style eatery has an informal atmosphere and country style charm. The menu offers a variety of regional dishes, including locally caught fish from lake Como.

Our first night in Varenna and we were jet lagged and just wanted a good meal. It was cold and rainy so I ordered some lasagne as comfort food and my wife got the seafood pasta. My lasagne was slightly above average but the seafood pasta was really not good. Tasted like they drowned it in canned clam juice and... More

Arrogant, unfriendly staff. At the end of the evening the owner tried to rip me off by putting extra dishes on the bill. When I asked for an explanation he even tried to deny it.

We did not stay in the hotel but we were the only customers in the restaurant that night and so our food was served pretty quickly. The food was great at a great price. The person who ran the place even served us limoncello on the house. The texture of the limoncello was smooth and although I did not finish... More

Attached to the B&B/hotel above, the restaurant is quite large with modern decor. The food was good, service was friendly. Popular with locals I think.

This is a lovely restaurant with great service. We recently stayed in Varenna for ten days, and ate here pretty much every other night. The food is great, and the servers wonderful. Situated right on San Giorgio Square, it is convenient. Great value. You need to go!

My wife and I did not stay at the hotel but ate breakfast here one morning which was very good. Great view of the lake and has free Wi-Fi which was a plus, especially since the place we were staying at did not.

Try the local spaghetti speciality with fishes from the lake. The waiter told me that mostly locals select this food and the recipe is from his grandmother :)
